Hammered Copper Circle, Hoop Style Earrings



I began these earrings by cutting discs out of copper, and then cutting the center out just above the middle to make the lower part wider than the top. I textured the copper to look a bit like sunrays (imagine a coppery setting sun!). I then antiqued the earrings and polished them to a warm gleam. The ear wires are Niobium, with a little copper ball. Niobium is considered one of the least allergenic metals.

These earrings are made to order and will have slight differences from the pictures. Please allow up to one week for these to be made and ready to ship.

SIZE: The earrings hang about 1 5/8 inches. They are 1 inch wide. Each earring weighs about 3 grams.

MATERIALS: Copper, Niobium

Note: I have similar hoop style earrings in copper and silver:
